That's not so good idea. What we maybe can do is that we send out a 
warning that if you commit to a package after the warning and the 
package has no maintainer yet then you become one. So that people would 
first check what they get on their name. Many packages were imported by 
Anne, i'm not sure that she's going to maintain them all. :)

I would do something like that:
2 months of warning period, if you touch package that has no maintainer 
you become its maintainer. After 2 months we start dropping those 
packages that have still no maintainer.

Maybe not dropping them all at once but by some list that is fist shown 
on the ml and some packagers can still save some packages from going away.
